Why Our Nation (The USA) is in Such a Mess
and How to Get Out of It
There are many reasons for our nations demise. Although there are many
individual reasons, there is really only one. We have left the ways of the
Lord behind and pursued our own faulty paths. We are on a slippery slope
of our own making.
We have become a nation whose economy and wealth have been based
on lies and falsehood, from the government on down. Real money and
prosperity has been abandoned and we have been building on a house of
cards for almost 100 years now. Our house of cards is now falling down.
Jekyll Island
In 1910 a group of high government and business officials met at Jekyll
Island to create the Federal Reserve Bank.
"The matter of a uniform discount rate was discussed and settled at Jekyll
Island." -Paul M. Warburg 1
On the night of November 22, 1910, a group of newspaper reporters stood
disconsolately in the railway station at Hoboken, New Jersey. They had just
watched a delegation of the nation's leading financiers leave the station on
a secret mission. It would be years before they discovered what that
mission was, and even then they would not understand that the history of
the United States underwent a drastic change after that night in Hoboken.
The delegation had left in a sealed railway car, with blinds drawn, for an
undisclosed destination. They were led by Senator Nelson Aldrich, head of
the National Monetary Commission. President Theodore Roosevelt had
signed into law the bill creating the National Monetary Commission in 1908,
The main problem, as Paul Warburg informed his colleagues, was to avoid
the name "Central Bank". For that reason, he had decided upon the
designation of "Federal Reserve System". This would deceive the people
into thinking it was not a central bank. However, the Jekyll Island plan
would be a central bank plan, fulfilling the main functions of a central bank;
it would be owned by private individuals who would profit from ownership of
shares. As a bank of issue, it would control the nation's money and credit.
From: Secrets of the Federal Reserve. Eustace Mullins
The purpose of the Federal Reserve is to steal money from the unknowing
public and place it in the hands of the high and mighty in business and
government. Prior to the creation of this entity, money was backed by gold
and silver 100%. Currency could only be created if there was something of
value backing it up. Now currency could be created and it would be an
invisible tax upon the people. The more dollars that were available, the less
each one was worth, Only the very first spender of the newly created dollar
received goods of full value for it. Once it was in circulation it devalued all
of the rest.
This may be difficult to understand, but here is how it works explained in a
simple manner. It is hard to understand with currency because the numbers
are so staggering, in the trillions. But, our example will make it easier.
Suppose you had a company that made widgets. You wanted to expand so
you sold stock to 10 friends for $100,000 each. Each friend now owned
10% of the company. The company was worth one million dollars. Later
you needed more money. So, you printed up ten more stock certificates
and also sold them for $100,000 each. This would not be too bad if the
company had grown and doubled or tripled in value. The original
stockholders would still have their value. But, if the company remained of
the same value, now there are 20 shares of stock instead of ten, so each
one is only worth $50,000 dollars, not $100,000. So, you have swindled the
original buyers of the stock out of half of their value. This is almost exactly
what the Federal Reserve does to our dollar every time they fire up the
printing press, as they are doing today in 2009 to conjure up trillions of
dollars to perform bailouts.
For hundreds of years in United States history, a silver dollar was worth
one dollar. An ounce of gold was worth its market value. It remained almost
the same constantly. You could save for a house and know what it would
cost to buy it in five years and what you could sell it for in 25 years. The
value of money was a near constant. You could plan for the future without
inflation being an issue. You did not need to make large amounts of interest
on your money just to keep its value even with inflation. There was no
inflation to speak of.
From the participants of the Jekyll Island meeting, to President F. D.
Roosevelt when he outlawed gold ownership for private citizens, to
President Nixon when he closed the gold window to other nations, they all
thought they were doing some new and creative thing. They were wrong.
They were just following in the way of Cain and Nimrod. Cain, according to
Jewish tradition was the inventor of a double set of weights and measures
for trade. He was the first murderer and the first cheating money changer.
Nimrod re-implemented Cain’s crooked system in Babylon after the flood.
The great men of this world who think that they are coming up with a new
scheme to enrich themselves are merely using one that Satan introduced
way back 6000 years ago in the book of Genesis. It may be new to them
but it is simply an old scam revisited.
Lev. 19:36 Use honest scales and honest weights, an honest ephah and an
honest hin. I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt.
Deut. 25:13 Do not have two differing weights in your bag—one heavy, one
Deut. 25:15 You must have accurate and honest weights and measures, so
that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
Prov. 11:1 The LORD abhors dishonest scales, but accurate weights are
his delight.
Prov. 20:10 Differing weights and differing measures—the LORD detests
them both.
Mic. 6:11 Shall I acquit a man with dishonest scales, with a bag of false
False weights and false measures equals dishonest trade. The Lord hates
it. Governments using fiat currency is just another way to practice
dishonest trade. You simply do it after the fact, You give someone money
and then devalue it after they have received it. That is what governments
are doing when they print currency that cannot be redeemed for gold or
silver. No wonder we are under God’s curse. There is not one nation in this
world today using honest money. Every nation is using fiat currency and
every nation is cheating their citizens and customers with it. It’s not just the
United States that is under a curse, it is the whole world.
The creation of The Federal Reserve was the first step in forcing us to
disobey God’s laws on usury, which is interest. The word usury has come
to mean excessive interest in our culture today, but in the bible it means
interest period.
Ex. 22:25 If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou
shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.
Lev. 25:36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that
thy brother may live with thee.
Lev. 25:37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy
victuals for increase.
Lev. 25:36 NIV Do not take interest of any kind from him, but fear your
God, so that your countryman may continue to live among you.
Deut. 23:19 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money,
usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:
Deut. 23:20 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy
brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God may bless
thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to
possess it.
Charging of interest (usury means interest) to retain the value of ones
money only becomes necessary when there is inflation. Let me explain. If
inflation is 3% a year then money in the bank must make 5% in order to
make a 2% profit. Without inflation a person could lend money at 2% and
still make the same amount. This is why inflation and printing of money is
bad. It continually forces up the price of all goods and services. Without
inflation you can have a stable long term economy.
Notice it says in the verses above in Deut 23:20 that it is OK to lend to a
foreigner on interest, but not a fellow citizen. Money for housing, food and
domestic purchases should forever be lent at 0%. That would keep our
economy moving. The money lent would be from the bank depositors who
put their money in the bank, no to make a profit, but to keep it safe from
thieves. Keeping money in a mattress is dangerous. The house can burn
down and destroy it, or thieves can break in and steal it.
The purpose of a bank is to protect the money, not to pay interest. There
should be special banks that lend to foreigners for a profit. These would be
for risk takers who wanted to earn interest but could afford to lose all of
their money if something happened. The money lending banks would kind
of be like a casino, but of course with much less risk and much less reward
So, the creation of the Federal Reserve System destroyed honest banking.
It caused us to have a “fiat” (unbacked) currency. It caused inflation,
making it necessary to collect interest on ones money just to stay even.
This was the beginning of our demise as a nation. Satan has deceived our
leaders into thinking that this is a good system.
Never in history has any paper currency survived when the government
was allowed to print as much of it as they wanted or needed. They have all
failed, and our dollar will fail also, unless we return to a real money
standard soon. Real money is gold or silver. I do not expect us to do that
though. What will probably happen is that the dollar will be replaced with a
new fiat currency and those in power will succeed in keeping the scam
going for a while longer, perhaps another 25 years. Someday it will fall
though, and take the United Stated down with it. Paper is simply worth the
value of the paper when not backed by real assets. Someday the chickens
will come home to roost and the world will realize that the dollar is
worthless and our economic system in the USA will be thrown into great
In the beginning it was only the citizens who were being defrauded. In 1971
President Richard Nixon completed the job and refused to honor the United
States commitment to allow other nations (namely France) to exchange
their dollars they received in business trades for gold. Nixon closed the
“gold window” and now defrauded not just citizens of their money, but
countries and nations also. What they said about him was apparently
correct, “you couldn’t trust him any more than a used care salesman.” He
didn’t just cheat people, he cheated nations.
Lev. 19:13 “ ‘Do not defraud your neighbor or rob him.
Hos. 12:7 The merchant uses dishonest scales; he loves to defraud.
Mic. 2:2 They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them.
They defraud a man of his home, a fellowman of his inheritance.
Mal. 3:5 “So I will come near to you for judgment. I will be quick to testify
against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud
laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and
deprive aliens of justice, but do not fear me,” says the LORD Almighty.
Mark 10:19 You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, do not commit
adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor
your father and mother.’’”
We have become a nation of defrauders, we cheat our citizens, we throw
people out of their homes, we steal inheritances, and we cheat other
nations by paying them with freshly printed currency. For this we shall and
are now all suffering God’s judgment. Even children cheat their parents and
health care workers steal from the patients. Workers steal from their
employers and think that they have done nothing wrong. From the least to
the greatest we are thieves.
As people get defrauded out of their hard earned money they get angry and
want to defraud someone else. The one who has been cheated wants to
cheat someone else in order to get even, or closer to it. The average
person, even Christians feel it is OK to cheat on taxes because the
government is cheating us. They get to the point where if they can collect
some benefit fraudulently, like welfare, disability or unemployment it is OK
because we are just getting some of our money back that the government
stole. It carries on and on. Soon people are filing frivolous lawsuits to get
money, like getting a million dollars for spilling a hot cup of coffee at
McDonalds. Soon everyone is practicing deceit, that’s what fiat currency
leads to, a nation of thieves, where everyone steals from each other, with
no remorse whatsoever. This is exactly what Satan wants.
As bad as this is, if we were only doing this one thing wrong and everything
else right, we would not be in too bad of shape. At least on a national level
maybe the scales would balance a little bit. We haven’t stopped there
though. This is just the beginning of us pursuing our own evil ways.
Our Educational System
Our educational system began with the premise of our founding fathers that
if our children could read, they would read the bible and become good,
hard working, honest and industrious citizens, a benefit for our nation. This
is why children were taught to read, so they could read the bible, and the
bible was one of the main textbooks, because often it was one of the only
books available, So, as children and adults were learning to read, they
were also learning God’s word. What a beautiful system. No wonder our
country prospered for two hundred years. No Federal Reserve and
everyone who wanted to learn to read would start with the bible, not Dick
and Jane.
Our educational system is now in almost complete disarray. Much of what
is taught is not only useless foolishness, much of it is untrue. Most children
today know nothing of our history, our constitution and the bible, which is
what they should have learned. Not only is much of what we are teaching in
public schools useless, but it is worse than that, It is anti God altogether. I
work there, I know. I cannot even begin to describe to you what is
happening there, suffice it to say that it is no wonder we are creating a
nation of spoiled brats who when they get out into the business world have
no conscience and no remorse for stealing from widows and orphans. We
have no teaching of personal responsibility, morality or honesty. All of that
is out of the window. It is only I, me, mine. Take what you want, get your
own way, and to hades with everyone else.
That is what we teach, and that is what we get for future citizens. Politicians
and business people who steal and rob without any feelings whatsoever,
They were never taught that there is an absolute right and wrong and that
there is a judgment waiting at the end. The theme of our schools is “get it
while you can, by whatever means.” Always get your own way. Even
teachers are terrorized by students in some schools. That is because we
have made education a right, and not a privilege. Those who come to
school and behave in a socially acceptable manner should be allowed to
learn. Those who don’t behave should be expelled and find out the hard
way that digging ditches with a shovel is hard work. Better to behave and
learn reading and math that to work like a dog for little money. Along with
our financial woes, our educational system is ruining our nation.
Our Homes
Satan has deceived us and destroyed our homes. He has caused divorce
to create a nation of one parent households. This is bad enough for the
parents who must try to make ends meet, but it is even worse for the
children. They have not just lost 50% of their supervision, but often it has
been replaced with something worse, daycare.
The daycare facilities are similar to the schools, but worse. The kids learn
that adults are supposed to constantly entertain and feed them. They can’t
sit still and be quiet for five minutes. They learn to run and yell and scream
and be screamed at until someone feeds or entertains them. They learn to
be even more selfish than what they have already become in school. Not
only are they becoming stupid, lazy and demanding, now they are
becoming fat also. Food is the only thing that shuts them up for awhile. It is
like giving the dog a bone to chew on to keep him busy while the family
eats supper. How can such a nation as this survive when we are doing
almost everything wrong? We will not survive unless we change our ways.
It will take a miracle of God to right our sinking ship.
Two Full Time Wage Earning Families
Not only has Satan deceived us in the financial system and in the schools
and in bringing up children, he has deceived us in our home financial
Years ago, in the 1950’s it only took one wage earner to support a
household in good fashion. During world war II many women went to work
in the factories because the men went off to war. When the men returned,
many of the women kept working. This allowed the family to progress faster
financially than under the old one wage earner and one stay-at-home
parent system. For a time this worked. For two income families from the
1950’s until the 1990’s life was good in a financial sense. Two wage earner
families had nice homes, nice cars and bought the latest toys for their kids.
Now the situation has changed.
What has happened? Real wages, adjusted for inflation stopped going up
in the 1980’s. They have actually fallen. Because people could survive with
two people working full time, prices went up and wages stayed the same,
or went up less than prices. Satan has us in his trap. Now two people must
work full time in order to survive. We are slaves, both men and women.
Before that only the men were wage slaves, now the women are also and
we can’t get out of it. If everyone refused to have two wage earner families
wages would have to stay in line with prices. Homes would have to be
priced to be able to be sold on the basis of one workers income, one head
of household, whether male or female makes no difference. Food and
autos and all goods would have to be priced so a head of household could
provide for his or her family. But Satan has us in his clutches now. It takes
two people working as hard as they can, as much they can, and as long as
they can to survive. That’s just to survive, not to get ahead. And woe to the
single person or the one wage earner family. They are in dire straights.
The greed of the bankers, the government and business has caused prices
to rise and wages to fall so that two people working only make what one
person should be making. Two people making $12.00 an hour make less
than one person making $25.00 an hour. Not only that, but with two people
working they must now have two cars, buy more clothes, especially the
women, buy more cosmetics, pay for daycare, and on and on the list goes.
Stop and think about how much it costs to go to work. What about all the
fast food consumed because there is no time to cook? What about the
Starbucks coffee and the doughnuts on the way there in the morning. Think
about every penny a two wage earner family spends on work related items.
Two people making $12.00 an hour have a whole lot less disposable
income than one head of household making $25.00 an hour. After the cost
of work and daycare is taken into account, we are poorer than when we
began. Satan has us on a treadmill now, and he is not letting us off of it
easily. We are all in the rat race now, and the rats are winning.
God intended that the man would work and support his family. Satan has
come in and destroyed the family unit and turned things upside down. We
are all wage slaves now. Not only that, it is affecting women’s health in a
negative way. All of the stress and diseases that formerly fell mostly on
men, are now affecting women also. Strokes, heart attacks, stress related
illnesses and more are now women’s fare also. Some may get mad about
this section, but God set up the program, not me. He made the man
physically stronger so he could work and support his family. Women and
children should not have to work like slaves in a Chinese tennis shoe
factory in order to eat. This is not God’s plan, this is Satan’s plan, and we
have fallen for it, hook, line and sinker.
Gen. 3:19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return
to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust
you will return.”
1Tim. 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his
own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
Satan’s goal is to get us all on the dole! He wants every person in the world
to depend on their government for support. Once a person, especially a
woman with children gets on welfare it is almost impossible to get off. How
can a woman find a job when she is home taking care of the kids? How can
she work if she did find one? We would be better off with the old orphanage
system, where if you can’t take care of your kids you take them to the
orphanage until you get on your feet and are able to provide a home for
You may think, that’s a terrible thing to say, but think about it. If the
government has to provide a home and food and medical care for every
single mother with children, how much does that cost? 50 children, 50
homes, 50 heating bills, 50 sets of food stamps, 50 utility bills, 50 health
care subsidies, 50 of everything. How much cheaper is it just to provide a
place for the kids to live and go to school and have a nurse on staff until the
mother can get herself established? You can run an orphanage with about
10 full time employees, and you don’t have to pay for their housing and
other bills. Just 10 employees, not fifty homes to support. Many
orphanages were also church run or sponsored, taking some of the burden
off of the taxpayer.
I’m not blasting the single mothers for taking advantage of the system that
is in place. It is what we have. But, it is the wrong system. We need a
system that allows people to become independent free people. Not
government slaves for the rest of their lives. If a woman has three children
and is on welfare for 25 years, what kind of job is she going to get at 45
years old with no job skills. Menial labor for minimum wage? All the years
that should have been spent working (if she chooses not to marry) have
been spent sitting at home. Now the children are all 18 and on their own,
what can she do? Our system creates more problems than it solves. She
won’t even have time to accrue a decent social security benefit let alone a
pension or a well funded 403b. The system, almost like our prison system,
will have turned her into a living zombie, dependant on the government for
Ex. 22:22 “Do not take advantage of a widow or an orphan.
James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is
this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself
from being polluted by the world.
Government Health Care
In 2009 our new president has as one of his goals to create a national
health care system. This seems like a nice thing to do. It sounds good,
most people will be all for it. But will it be for the better?
We need to go back and look at how the health care problem started in the
first place. This may be new to you. It may be a shocking revelation. The
government has caused this crisis. Here is how it happened.
During and after the great depression many entitlement programs were put
into place. Graduated federal income taxes were implemented. As you
made more money, you paid more tax. And since the government
continued to print more and more counterfeit currency, wages went up and
everyone was constantly advancing into higher and higher tax brackets.
Social security was also implemented. The employee paid tax out of his
check, and the employer was required by law to match that amount and
send it in to the Federal Government.
Now, employers came up with a bright idea to beat the system. They would
provide benefits, like health care insurance for one thing, to entice
employees to hire on with their companies and stay with them. Employees
did not demand health care from employers, employers created it to avoid
taxes. Do you see? If they paid the employee more money, the employee
would lose some of it to the government. The more they paid the more he
would lose by going into a higher and higher bracket. No only that but the
employer would have to also pay social security tax, matching the
employees contribution. Later it became even worse when disability,
workman’s compensation and unemployment taxes were invented. So,
employers enticed employees with benefits. It was cheaper than higher
wages for the business. It was not the unions that created the idea of
benefits as some try to make us believe.
So, what happened after that? Formerly when I was young, and someone
was sick we called the doctor and he came over and treated the patient,
perhaps gave a shot of penicillin and some free samples of other
medication and perhaps also wrote a prescription for other medication to be
filled at the local pharmacy. The cost, $10.00 to $15.00, and the doctor was
the richest man in our neighborhood at that time. He had the biggest home
and the newest car.
After employer sponsored health insurance was invented things changed.
Soon there were no more house calls. Doctors operated out of offices and
clinics. You went to them. The standard charge became whatever the
maximum amount was that your insurance company would pay.
This is why our health care system is in such a mess today. If you go in for
an office call the charge is always about $125.00 plus the co-pay. It doesn’t
matter if you just go in to pick up a prescription for a medication you are
taking for the rest of you life. You may not even see the doctor. The slip
may be at the desk for you. This is very close to fraud, but it is an accepted
way of doing business. The charge is geared to whatever the insurance
company will pay, not how much time, effort and work really went into it.
It is the same in government contracts. We have all heard about the
$100.00 toilet seats. Let me tell you how that happens. The government
sets a price for the maximum it will pay for a toilet seat. Perhaps there is
one special model for handicapped people that is $99.99, but normal seats
at Home Depot are $9.99. Now, when a contractor is asked to provide 1000
toilet seats to the government they have their billing person find out what is
the maximum the government will pay for a toilet seat. The billing person
finds out that the maximum is $100.00. So, the contractor buys 1000 seats
from the Chinese vendor that home Depot gets them from for $3.00 each
and bills the government $100.00 each for them. This is how the system
works, and this is how our tax dollars are wasted.
I’ve said all that to say this: this is exactly the same thing that happens in
the health care industry. If the maximum the insurance company will pay for
a hot towel is $30.00, then $30.00 it is. Everything is billed at the maximum,
even if the goods or services provided are worth next to nothing. An ACE
bandage that can be purchased at Walgreen’s for $7.00 will be billed for
$70.00. If you go into the hospital (God Forbid) review your bill carefully
and you will see the fraud. I received bills from physicians who never even
talked to me. Never visited me once. It is standard practice for physicians
to walk by and sign the chart by your door and get paid from the insurance
company, hundreds of dollars, for nothing. I have seen it happen with my
own eyes. Seven physicians get paid for one patient, even if only one sees,
treats or speaks to the patient. This is how the system works and why
doctors get rich. They can make thousands of dollars just by signing charts
outside the hospital room doors, all before they report to their own office
about 8:30 AM. Some make more signing false charts in one week than
most ordinary workers make in a year.
Go to the dentist, they will tell you, you can get X-rays, your insurance will
cover it again this year. Would you get them if you were paying for them out
of your pocket? Would you buy new glasses when your old ones are just
fine, if insurance wasn’t paying for it. Medical scammers drum up
unnecessary procedures to increase their business and to get payments
from insurance companies.
What is my point? Socialized medicine will only work if all doctors, nurses
and medical employees are employed by the government in clinics and
hospitals and their wages are set at a reasonable level, about the same as
a plumber for a doctor. If this is not the case then fraud will bankrupt the
system. In other words if our president implements an insurance system in
which the highest fee for every service is always collected, even if the
service is not performed, or is performed but was not necessary, then fraud
will bankrupt the system.
People who want to work in health care need to be in it because they love
people and want to help them. A nurse should be paid like a teacher, and a
doctor in the low six figure range, at today’s currency value. Any more than
that will bankrupt the system. Remember, every penny that the health care
workers are paid must first be taken from the people out of their paychecks.
How much more taxes can you afford to pay? Soon the government will
have to take our entire check just to make ends meet for Federal bills. In
return they will have to give us food stamps, health care and social
security. Is that what we want? A totally socialist society where everyone’s
wages are determined by the politicians? That is where we are heading if
we don’t stop the downward spiral soon.
A socialist system is not necessarily a bad system if everyone is in
agreement with it. Where it becomes a really bad system is when the
socialist system decides to also control religion, and it will.
Before we go on to the next section I want to take the time to explain what
is happening in more detail. The purpose for doing this is so that the reader
may not come to the conclusion that I am blaming women for all of the
problems we are having.
It is the men who caused all these problems by creating the situations to
exist that cause these problems. Just like the earlier example, the men, evil
men, created the Federal Reserve Banking system, which created inflation,
which forced women to go to work full time to help feed their families. It was
the men who started the process rolling due to their greed and their desire
to defraud hard working citizens of their money. The women were simply
pawns in the hands of the schemers.
What is really happening is that Satan, primarily through greedy men, is
setting up a system whereby He, (Satan) controls everyone on the planet.
This is known as the Babylonian system, and Satan tried to implement it
through Nimrod shortly after the flood.
Basically, what Nimrod did is created government controlled money. He
controlled all of the money in Babylon and by doing so he controlled almost
all of the people. He told the people that it was by their own hard work that
they would become rich and successful, not by God’s blessing. Nimrod
taught that anyone who served God was a coward and a fool. He
convinced them to build a tower so high that God could never again destroy
them with a flood. Some also thought that when the tower reached Heaven,
they would kill God and take revenge on him for destroying their ancestors.
No doubt, it was Satan who inspired Nimrod to such lunacy, and also the
people who followed him. Only Abraham and a few others escaped from
Babylon. Abraham was thrown into a fiery furnace by Nimrod, but was
uninjured and allowed to leave unhindered. Abraham was taught the ways
of God by Shem, the son of Noah, and by Noah himself. You can read
about all of this in Josephus’ book of Antiquities and in the Book of Jasher,
a Jewish historical work mentioned in the Bible.
Satan, since the very beginning has desired to be God. He desires to be
the leader of this world and desires worship from every person on the
planet. He intends to get it by eventually controlling the entire money
supply on this planet and forcing everyone to worship him or starve. Satan
is using greedy men who do not even realize that they are duped pawns in
this game to make this scenario come to pass. Their greed has blinded
them to what they are doing, to how they are destroying our nation and the
Rev. 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free
and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Rev. 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark,
or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
You may ask, why is God allowing this to happen. The answer is that God
will use what Satan is doing for good. He will use it to sort out the people
who live in the end times into two groups, those who love God and those
who don’t.
It was Satan who incited the Jews and the Romans to crucify Jesus Christ,
but God used Satan’s evil intentions for good, to make it possible for our
1Cor. 2:6 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the
mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are
coming to nothing.
1Cor. 2:7 No, we speak of God’s secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been
hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.
1Cor. 2:8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they
would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
Neither Satan nor the princes and rulers of this world knew that by
murdering Jesus Christ, they would enable our Salvation.
Satan now knows that he is defeated, but he wants to take as many people
to hell with him as possible. Misery loves company.
So, the whole goal of everything negative that is happening is a part of
Satan’s plan. He will rule the world through a man that he puts on the
throne of the world, a man we call “the Antichrist.”
Satan offered it to Jesus, but Jesus refused.
Matt. 4:8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him
all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.
Matt. 4:9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship
Matt. 4:10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written:
‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’’”
Matt. 4:11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
The Antichrist will accept his offer. Satan will receive his worship
vicariously, through the Antichrist. By worshipping Antichrist, to receive
government benefits and money, one will be in effect worshipping Satan,
which is what he has always desired.
Rev. 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If
any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his
forehead, or in his hand,
Rev. 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is
poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be
tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in
the presence of the Lamb:
Rev. 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever:
and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image,
and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Rev. 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the
commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Satan and his Antichrist will have plenty of company in Hell, in the Lake of
Fire. Millions, no billions of people will be deceived and accept his mark
and his promise of financial security for doing so.
I could go on and on and on about how socialism is creeping into our
country. The social welfare system gets people hooked on government
assistance. Once on it, it is almost impossible for a person to get off of it.
They are almost forced to stay in their homes and let the government take
care of them for the rest of their lives. The will be right at the front of the
line to get their marks so their assistance keeps coming. Beware if you are
on welfare, you will have to take the mark of the beast to keep getting it,
and that will give you a one way ticket on a rocket sled to hell.
Social security too is a Satanic tool. He hooks young unwed mothers with
welfare, and old people with social security. Social security recipients will
have to take their mark to keep their money coming. Likewise disability
payments and unemployment and Medicare, and everything that is
provided by the government. However, everything provided by the
government has first been stolen from it’s citizens, if not in the form of taxes
then through inflation caused by the infernal Federal Reserve System.
If there was no inflation and taxes were low, and Wall street wasn’t full of
thieves, a person could prepare for their own retirement. But with our
system, it is almost impossible. Even when you do what you are told like a
good little puppet and put 10% of all of your income into the stock market,
they take it all away before you can retire. The old adage on wall street is
that recessions and depressions are when stocks return to their rightful
owners. When stocks sell for pennies on the dollar, the rich will buy them
back and sell them to the poor people again, over and over and over,
stealing the working persons retirement money. The stock market is
nothing more than a rigged casino, in which the house always wins.
You don’t believe it? Think about this. On a tour a naïve tourist in a horse
drawn carriage tour of a great New York harbor heard the tour master say;
look over there, there you will see all of rich Wall Street stockbrokers
yachts. The naïve tourist asked, yes I see them, but where are the
customers yachts? Think about it. Where are the customers yachts?
Don’t forget all Military, Federal, State, County, City and civilian
government service employees will have to take the mark to keep their
jobs. Even the school system employees and state, county and city
pensioners. Why, because they all receive funding directly or indirectly from
the Federal Government.
So you see, Satan already has about 50% or more of the USA’s citizens in
his pocket already, having to receive the mark of his Antichrist in the near
future to keep receiving their current income. After they all take it (the mark)
most of the rest of the population will follow along, like sheep to the
It is not just in the USA this is happening, it is happening in the entire world.
That is why Satan is always against freedom. He wants dictatorships,
communism, socialism, any form of government that will put the people
under governmental control. People do not realize it but every time they
receive a new benefit from the government, they are putting them selves
deeper into slavery.
In history we have despots, dictators, kings, communists, socialists,
democracies, monarchies and on and on. No system is perfect, because all
systems are presided over by sinful people. It is hard to find a benevolent
dictator. A benevolent dictator or king is actually the best system. It has the
fastest response time to problems and you don’t have to support hundreds
of congressmen, each with their own personal entourage. But where can
you find a benevolent king? Someone who just cares about making the
peoples lives better, and not enriching themselves or building monuments
to themselves to satisfy their inflated egos? It is almost impossible to find a
leader who just wants to make everything better for everyone. One is
coming though, and soon. Jesus Christ will be returning to rule and reign
from Jerusalem, and he will be that honest and benevolent king who will
rule the people with integrity. Before that happens though, things are going
to get worse before they get better.
So what shall we do? Get a gun and end it all now? That’s not the answer.
We have a unique opportunity in history to lay up treasure in Heaven. Jews
are going to be getting saved and will need spiritual guidance. (see
www.countdownto6000.com/all1.html) Times will get tough and if we are
prepared we can help people survive and lay up great treasure. To prepare
to survive read www.countdownto6000.com/etsilver1.html.
Matt. 10:42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones
a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he
shall in no wise lose his reward.
Matt. 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither
moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor
Luke 12:33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags
which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief
approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
You may say, well, I’m not a preacher, I can’t do much. You can do a lot.
First of all you can stop stealing, if you are stealing and be a good example
for others. You can lay up treasure in heaven by doing nothing, nothing bad
that is. My point is that if you are involved in evil, get out of it. Then you will
be a good example to someone to whom before you were a bad example.
See what Paul says:
Eph. 4:28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour,
working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to
him that needeth.
You can lay up treasure in Heaven just by working and giving to the poor.
You don’t have to be a minister to send something on ahead for the day of
your death and later the judgment.
Rom 14:10-12 …For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
For it is written: "As I live, says the LORD, Every knee shall bow to Me, And
every tongue shall confess to God." So then each of us shall give account
of himself to God.
Just begin to follow what God says to do. Follow the ten commandments
and read the new testament and do whatever Jesus says to do. If you just
do that you will be rich in heaven. Even a beggar was rich compared to the
rich man in hell.
Luke 16:19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine
linen and lived in luxury every day.
Luke 16:20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with
Luke 16:21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the
dogs came and licked his sores.
Luke 16:22 “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried
him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried.
Luke 16:23 In hell, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw
Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side.
Luke 16:24 So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and
send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue,
because I am in agony in this fire.’
Luke 16:25 “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you
received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he
is comforted here and you are in agony.
Luke 16:26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has
been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can
anyone cross over from there to us.’
Luke 16:27 “He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my
father’s house,
Luke 16:28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not
also come to this place of torment.’
Luke 16:29 “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let
them listen to them.’
Luke 16:30 “ ‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead
goes to them, they will repent.’
Luke 16:31 “He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the
Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’”
Jesus came back from the dead, and most don’t listen to him, proving the
words of this parable to be true. The point here is that even if you are the
poorest person in the world, even a sick beggar, it is better to be saved and
on the Lord’s side than to dwell with the wicked in hell. It is better to be a
doorkeeper in heaven than the master of hell.
Psa. 84:10 … I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to
dwell in the tents of wickedness.
If all you can do is clean the toilets at the church you will be laying up
treasure in heaven that will pay dividends throughout eternity. And not
dividends that are paid with fiat currency. The streets of heaven are paved
with gold.
Rev. 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate
was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were
transparent glass.
I could go on and on and on about the things that are happening in the
United States and in the world to bring it under Satan’s dominion in
preparation for the end times. But, if you have read this far, I trust that you
are way too smart for me to have to tell you about it all. You can read any
newspaper, magazine or watch a nightly news program and see it for
All you need to know is this: Anything that gives any government more
control over it’s people is of Satan, even if the people vote it in themselves.
God is about freedom, especially religious freedom. Satan’s desire to
control all of the money is not because he wants money. What he wants is
to control the religion of the world and direct worship to himself, by coercion
and force if necessary. He asked for worship from Jesus, and didn’t get it.
He will demand it from us in order to receive his favors and benefits.
Part II: How to Get Out of this Mess
At the beginning of this study I said in the title I would tell you how we can
get out of this mess. There is a way, and it is very easy, however, I do not
expect that we will do it. But, of all the nations in the world that have at
least a slim chance of success, at least a chance of remaining a good place
to live until Christ returns, we have one of the best chances. The nations
that have the best possibilities are, Australia, Canada, England, and the
United States. Recently, when rockets from Gaza terrorists were raining
down upon Israel, only Canada voted to allow Israel to retaliate. That
shows that they at least have a tiny bit of biblical conscience left. The
nations I have mentioned are those that were formerly a part of the British
Empire and at some time in their history at least practiced some form of
Christianity. Some where way back in their national conscience is a small
glimmer of hope. Maybe one of them will repent and turn again to the Lord.
We are in a lot of messes. Financial, political, moral and more. Right now
what is on the minds of most of the world is the financial mess. Most do not
realize that the financial mess is simply the result of what is in a sense the
moral mess, the fact that we disobey God’s commands. But, we will start
with a cure to the global financial meltdown and then go on to other things.
(Prov 22:7 NKJV) The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant
to the lender.
The bible states a simple fact. If you are a borrower you have become a
servant or a slave to the lender. You are working to make the lender
Now, if you watch the television financial news you will see that their
answer to getting the economy moving again is for the credit freeze to
unthaw and for lending to begin again as it did during the housing and
credit bubble.
This is exactly the wrong thing to do. It was excess credit, excess
borrowing that caused this mess in the first place. If credit had not been
available the housing boom would never have happened, and neither
would the crash have happened when the bubble burst. Many would
disagree and say, we have to have these booms, they are what sustain us.
To them I would say, you can take your choice: A slow growing economy of
perhaps 3% a year, growth in direct proportion to population increase, or a
boom and bust cycle.
When you print money and make credit available for long term high interest
rates, you are simply borrowing the good times from tomorrow to enjoy it
today. At some point in time the cycle must end. What we are now going
through in the world economy in primarily the Anglo Saxon nations, is the
same as a person living large on credit cards, until the bills get so large that
not even the minimum payments can be made. Then the bust comes. That
is what we have done with every bubble since the 1920’s. We borrow and
spend, and have boom and bust. We need to get off of this train. Let’s just
have slow steady growth forever rather than this. That is what would be
best for the people, but the rich and greedy won’t let it happen.
They won’t let it happen because there is too much money to be made too
fast by enticing people to get in debt above and beyond what they can
possibly ever repay.
An example: The State of Florida allowed totally unrestricted growth for
years. They allowed new housing and strip malls and office buildings to be
built even though there was no infrastructure in place to support it. No
roads, no sewers, no schools, no planning whatsoever. Now, not only do
we have an overbuilt condition here in housing and commercial property,
but we do not have the money to complete the infrastructure and schools to
even cover what has already been built. If infrastructure had been required
to be built first, there would still be a waiting list for building permits in
Florida. Construction would not have stopped. Workers would still be
But that did not happen because human greed was so strong that it
overruled all reason. The lust for the formerly so called almighty dollar
blinded the eyes of the leadership of the state, county and city
governments. They wanted every penny they could get, and they wanted it
yesterday. They got it, but today is now here and we have mortgaged our
future, and now we are living in that future with insufficient income.
You may say, how could we have done otherwise? Well, if we were
following God’s laws on lending this never could have happened.
How so? Well, first of all, as we already studied, God’s law requires 0%
interest for necessities. Food, shelter and clothing. If a person gets
themselves in over their head buying toys, that is their problem. But for the
necessities of life God requires interest free loans. The payments will never
change. There will be no “finance charge reset” every year, driving the
house payment to impossible levels.
Second of all, God requires that no loan be for more than seven years.
That makes it almost impossible to have a long term recession or
depression. All loans will be done in seven years. People would know
exactly what their payment would be, and just exactly how far they had to
go to get their mortgage paid off. You might say, don’t they know now?
Well, yes, but 30 years is such a long time that you can’t scrape by that
long on unemployment or being underemployed. If the loan periods were
shorter people could strive to make it to the end of their payments. Not only
that, but if they had to sell, even after three years, look how much equity
they would have. They would almost surely be able to sell their home for a
(Deu 15:1 NKJV) "At the end of every seven years you shall grant a
release of debts.
(Deu 15:2 NKJV) "And this is the form of the release: Every creditor who
has lent anything to his neighbor shall release it; he shall not require it of
his neighbor or his brother, because it is called the Lord's release.
(Deu 15:3 NKJV) "Of a foreigner you may require it; but you shall give up
your claim to what is owed by your brother,
If home prices had to stay down to reasonable levels in order to sell, say
$100,000 dollars then see how much equity a person would build in just a
few years using God’s program.
Home buyer: $100,000 home. Seven year loan, $1000.00 a month
payments, 0% interest. $12,000 a year on principal. $16,000 down.
Day one: $16,000 equity (down Payment)
End of year one: $28,000 equity
End of year two: $40,000 equity
End of year three: $52,000 equity
End of year four: $64,000 equity
End of year five: $76,000 equity
End of year six: $88,000 equity
End of year seven: $100,000 equity – Paid for.
This is how God would have the mortgage industry run.
You might ask, how in the world could the banks make any money with a
system like that? Well, for one thing, the banks are getting the money for
free, from depositors, who are depositing the money for safety, not for gain,
so the banks are not paying any interest either. Not only that but only about
20 to 30% of all loans would be to consumers for the necessities of life.
Other loans can charge interest. Loans to governments, (like U.S. Treasury
bonds) loans to businesses, loans to foreigners, loans for toys, such as
boats, cars, motorcycles, etc. These can all be charged interest. The banks
can still make plenty of money. Probably more than they are now. Not only
that, but people would rarely default on homes. With they equity buildup
being so swift, rarely would a homeowner be unable to sell their house and
pay off the bank. After the first year of payments the bank would be on
pretty safe footing. They would rarely lose on a home loan. In most cases
just the down payment alone of 16% would make it possible for the bank to
sell the home at a break even price, even if they did have to foreclose. We
would not be in the mess we are now if we followed these rules.
Not only that, but every seven years everyone would be out of debt. God
also had it in his plan that the loan cycle started every seventh year for
everyone. If you took out a loan three years into the cycle, it could only be a
four year loan, until the first year of the loan cycle started again. You might
say, what good is that? Well, this prevents anyone form getting in over their
head forever by taking out a new seven year loan every year Pretty soon
they would be way over their head in debt. (it’s just human nature) By using
this rule God made it so that every person was no longer a slave to the
lender at the end of every seventh year. In other words, a person could
start over with no debt every seven years. They could not enslave
themselves or their children by borrowing money for a forty year mortgage.
Every seventh year a person could make a new start. If they chose to get
back in debt and buy a bigger house, that’s their problem, but they had the
chance to be free.
Using this method, consumers would be richer, (no interest on necessities)
banks could still make money, and even more money. Using a gold and
silver standard there would be almost no inflation, and the country would
prosper beyond belief.
Some may whine that they like to receive interest on their money. No
problem. That is still possible. The bank can make accounts that pay
interest on the money that is lent to governments, businesses and
foreigners and for toys. But, those would be the risky accounts. You could
lose your money. In the regular account, although you do not receive
interest, your principal would be insured. The system would have to be set
in place so that by law regular savings accounts would be guaranteed the
return of their deposits, by the federal government if necessary, with no
limit. And remember, there is virtually no inflation when fiat (unbacked)
currency is taken out of the equation. On a gold and silver standard you
could plan for retirement forty years into the future, and know exactly what
you would need to live on for as many years as you expected to live. No
inflation surprises. 15% a year inflation for five years could wipe many
retirees out. We may experience that when all the money being printed
today to bail out banks and businesses creates inflation. Don’t be surprised
if we have hyperinflation from 2012 through 2018. Someday the chickens
have to come home to roost. We will eventually pay for what our
government is doing today.
If inflation is too high in the future don’t be surprised is we have a currency
change. I expect a currency change will wipe out about 30% of the value of
the old currency, so the government can pay off their debts (they get the
30%) and the hyperinflation stops for a time because they pricked the
bubble all at once. After a few years they start the printing press up again,
and the cycle repeats itself. It would be good for governments and
businesses to follow the same rules as consumers, but that is probably
asking way too much.
The Stock Market
The New York Stock Exchange has been a crooked entity since it began.
Since it’s very first day it has been separating fools from their money. The
rich get richer and the poor schmucks lose their hard earned money. The
401k and 403b’s and all of the other so called retirement plans are all
devised to get people to buy stocks.
The choices in almost all company plans are often very limited. You might
have a low interest money market fund, a bond fund or three, and many
stock funds. The advisors will tell you the bond and money market funds
are only for retirees, and that even they should only have a small portion
invested in them for soon forthcoming withdrawals. But, anyone with 5 or
more years to go before retirement should be fully invested in a diversified
stock portfolio. Well, history proves otherwise, and is proving it again in
2009. The big boys run the game. They run stocks up until the little guys
have all the stocks. Then the big boys let the stocks fall until the little guys
have to sell at a loss to eat, pay bills, and keep their home. When stocks
are selling for pennies on the dollar, the big boys buy them all back and
start the game all over again.
A few get lucky, because the cycle lasts for 15 to 25 years. If you just
happen to be the right age and get in and get out at the right times you may
do well. But, it’s not because you are smart, you just got lucky and began
investing at the start of a new cycle and got out and retired just before the
end of it. If you stay in the game long enough you will get burned. The
people who got in when the plans were created (1974) and got out before
2000 made out pretty good. Since then if you had invested $50.00 a week
beginning in 2000, you would not even have your principal intact in 2009.
The losses of the past nine years will make it almost impossible to even get
the same return you could have gotten in bank CD's after 25 years, in
2025. The stock market will have to make some huge, huge gains, just to
get back to even at with the DJIA over 14,000. That’s the break even point
when you have your money back with no profit, but remember, you have
lost getting any growth on your early contributions for 10 or 15 years.
Unless you work until 80 years of age, you will never make it up.
By the way, stocks only make 6 ! % in the long run, regardless of what
they say or how many charts they show you. When a stock does badly it is
replaced in the indexes with another one that is doing better, to keep up the
scam. Only one original stock is left in the DJIA, the Dow-Jones Industrial
Average. Only GE, General Electric, Thomas Edisons company. All of the
rest of them went out of business or were de-listed because their price had
went down too much. The S&P 500 index was recently the S&P 498 when
two stocks were dropped due to low share price, or in E.F. Hutton’s case,
ceased to exist altogether. What they don’t tell you is that when a stock is
dropped from the index, and replaced with a new one, you don’t get the
new one for free, as you should. You lose the value of the old one and
have to purchase the new one or ones from the assets in your fund. The
index shows a gain and a profit, but your indexed fund shows a loss or at
least a decrease in value. When they show you the charts of how the S&P
500 has grown over the past 25 years, that may be true, but your mutual
fund based on the S&P would not have grown at that rate. They take the
losers out of the index and replace them with winners, but the losers stay in
your fund until they cease to exist and you lose your money. You have to
keep putting more and more money in just to stay even. That’s why they
want to take it out or your check automatically. That way your total value
will go up most of the time because of your contributions, not because of
their wonderful management of your money. They hide your losses with
your new contributions. It's a personal Ponzi scheme, a really crooked one.
Only the fund managers get rich. The participants get poor.
You can calculate yourself what the indexes do using a spreadsheet. Just
take the starting price of the index in a given year and todays price, and
see what percentage gain year over year is necessary to get to todays
price. You will find that in almost any given 30 year period it’s about 6 !
percent. Some might say but wait a minute there Clyde, what about the
dividends. If you buy individual stocks you might have a point there, you will
make a little more if you get the dividends. If you buy your own stocks and
manage your assets yourself, you have a chance to make a profit, but still
only about 7 1/2 to 8%, for a lot of risk. A 5% insured bond is a lot better
retirement investment than a high risk 8% stock.
If you invest in mutual funds the dividends and the fees are about equal.
They offset each other. So, you may see the dividends on a piece of paper,
but it is a mirage. They show dividends on the paper, but take fees take
them away with the other hand, the invisible one. In other words the mutual
fund company takes from 3 to 5 percent of your money as a charge for
managing it. If your dividends in an index fund are 2% and your fees are
4% you are losing another 2% on top of the fees, eating into the measly 6
! % you are getting. Now you are only making 4 1/2 percent. You may as
well have a 5 year CD or a T-Bond. You would be just as well off and a lot
safer too.
Stocks are for gamblers, tramps and thieves. Gentlemen prefer bonds, gold
and property. Vacant land near a growing city is a lot better investment
than the stock market. You buy the land at 30 years of age and sell it at 65.
The stock market is a casino. Play it if you want to, but like a trip to Las
Vegas, only gamble what you can afford to lose without losing any sleep
over it. Anything you really need for the future, like retirement funds or the
kids college fund, put it in something safe, something that will be there
when you need to use it.
One more thing about stocks. The IRA's, 401K's, etc. were created for the
purpose of taking the burden of retirement income for baby boomers off of
Social Security. Baby boomers started turning 59 1/2 in 2005. That is the
year they could begin to legally withdraw funds from their IRA's without a
10% penalty on top of paying the taxes. See anything here? when did the
stock market peak? When did it begin to fall? It peaked and then fell right in
line with the baby boomers being able to take their money out.
Many are waiting to take money out until they start collecting social security
at age 62 to 66. That is happening now. Baby boomers will now begin
selling stocks to makeup for the shortfall in SS income. In 2016, when baby
boomers begin to turn 70, the Federal Government mandates that the baby
boomers MUST make withdrawals from their retirement accounts. The
government does this because they want their deferred tax money to be
paid before the boomers die and everything is tied up in probate. The
question is, who in the world is going to buy all of these stocks that will be
sold in 2016? Unless the government changes the law somehow and takes
out the taxes only without forcing a liquidation of a percentage of the
portfolio assets, there will be another stock market crash in the 2016-2017
time frame. Young people today just don't make enough money to buy all
of these stocks that will be forced to be sold, therefore, the stock market
must go down. If the U.S. government doesn't come up with a good plan to
avoid this scenario, we are in store for another stock market meltdown in
the near future.
Immorality, Abortion and Birth Control
The only command that mankind in general has ever obeyed is the one
God gave to Adam and Eve. They have only obeyed it because God fooled
them into it, He made it fun. But, now they want the fun without the fruitful
(Gen 1:28 NKJV) Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be
fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish
of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves
on the earth."
Satan is fighting against that command. Really, to be truthful, the economy
of this world is one big Ponzi scheme. Everything depends on an ever
increasing population until Christ returns and rules with a perfect system.
Until then, we have to follow what God has commanded to keep things on
an even keel.
What is a Ponzi Scheme (from Wikepedia)
Charles Ponzi (March 3, 1882 – January 18, 1949) was one of the greatest
swindlers in American history. His aliases include Charles Ponei, Charles
P. Bianchi, Carl and Carlo. The term "Ponzi scheme" is a widely known
description of any scam that pays early investors returns from the
investments of later investors. He promised clients a 50% profit within 45
days, or 100% profit within 90 days, by buying discounted postal reply
coupons in other countries and redeeming them at face value in the United
States as a form of arbitrage. Ponzi was probably inspired by the scheme
of William F. Miller, a Brooklyn bookkeeper who in 1899 used the same
pyramid scheme to take in $1 million.
Social Security
Social security depends on there being ever more payers to support the
retirees. If the population increase slows, the whole system eventually goes
into default. The government economists are predicting that will happen by
2030 unless something changes drastically. Social Security was devised to
make sure that people saved something for retirement. The Federal
government takes about 7% of the gross pay from an employees check,
and forces the employer to match that amount. In other words, every
employee is saving 14% which should be plenty for retirement. With
interest I should have about $500,000 in my SS account right now after 40
years of contributing. But, President Johnson used the SS fund to pay for
the Vietnam war and his “Great Society” program and bankrupted it. It has
never been replenished. Since then all money paid out has been from new
people paying in. President Johnson made SS a giant Ponzi scheme. Now,
that’s OK if we have continuous population growth. Without it, We are
doomed to have a bankrupt SS system, or a very small payout compared to
what we put in. If the politicians had never touched SS money we could all
get $3000.00 a month without the fund ever running dry, or at least not for
a few hundred years.
That is why while the government gives only lip service to stopping both
legal and illegal immigration, they are really all for it. It is saving our bacon.
It is only the immigrants that are growing our working population. Any
couple with just two kids are only replacing themselves, not growing the
population, and creating extra workers and taxpayers to cover their
We have stifled our own population growth since the invention of the birth
control pill. Then on top of that we now have legalized abortion. Now the
third wave, legalized same sex marriage is in the works. (They might adopt,
but they don’t usually produce children. If they do it is not by normal means
birthing into a normal family)
Satan is behind all of this. He wants God’s people poor and unblessed. The
only birth rate that is up is that of unwed mothers. That rate is skyrocketing,
but that is no help. For every mother and child that receive benefits from
the government, that’s a drain on our economy, not a benefit. That is one
reason why immorality is wrong, it leads to fatherless families which leads
to taxpayer dollars going into assistance programs rather than social
security. In this case the young are stealing from the old.
Is their no one honest in our country? The old are stealing from the young
by printing money like it is going out of style, and running up huge debts for
useless boondoggles for future generations to pay. At the same time young
mothers and their babies are stealing SSI benefits from the old. Young men
and young women are swindling old people out of their retirement savings.
Politicians and crooked bankers and CEO’s are stealing from everyone.
Even the preachers steal and commit adultery. Our Nation is a den of
thieves, many from their very birth to their death.
Jer 7:8 "Behold, you trust in lying words that cannot profit.
Jer 7:9 "Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn
incense to Baal, and walk after other gods whom you do not know,
Jer 7:10 "and then come and stand before Me in this house which is called
by My name, and say, 'We are delivered to do all these abominations'?
Jer 7:11 "Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of
thieves in your eyes? Behold, I, even I, have seen it," says the LORD.
Jer 5:24 They do not say in their heart, "Let us now fear the LORD our
God, Who gives rain, both the former and the latter, in its season. He
reserves for us the appointed weeks of the harvest."
Jer 5:25 Your iniquities have turned these things away, And your sins have
withheld good from you.
Jer 5:26 'For among My people are found wicked men; They lie in wait as
one who sets snares; They set a trap; They catch men.
Jer 5:27 As a cage is full of birds, So their houses are full of deceit.
Therefore they have become great and grown rich.
Jer 5:28 They have grown fat, they are sleek; Yes, they surpass the deeds
of the wicked; They do not plead the cause, The cause of the fatherless;
Yet they prosper, And the right of the needy they do not defend.
Jer 5:29 Shall I not punish them for these things?' says the LORD. 'Shall I
not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?'
Jer 5:30 "An astonishing and horrible thing Has been committed in the
Jer 5:31 The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule by their own
power; And My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?
Overpopulation and Global Warming
Some might say, if God set the world up to be a giant Ponzi scheme, it will
eventually have to come to an end anyway. There will come a time when
the planet is just too full of people and there is no room for new players.
Now, that would be a correct assumption if there was not a set date for that
program to end and a new program to begin, and if God did not have
limitless assets. Not only does he own everything on earth, He owns
everything in the universe also. He has deep pockets. Not only that, he has
the power to create more just by speaking it.
1Cor. 10:26 for, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.”
Psa. 50:10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a
thousand hills.
When Christ returns that program will end. God has a day and an hour set
that the current program will end.
Is. 45:8 “You heavens above, rain down righteousness; let the clouds
shower it down. Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let
righteousness grow with it; I, the LORD, have created it.
Is. 45:12 It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own
hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts.
Is. 45:18 For this is what the LORD says—he who created the heavens, he
is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not
create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited— he says: “I am the
LORD, and there is no other.
The program will probably come to an end 6000 years from the day Adam
was created. That will probably be 2000 years from the ascension of Jesus
Christ. No one knows when that is though, but probably sometime between
2018 and 2070.
(Mat 25:13 "Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in
which the Son of Man is coming.
Another factor in the equation is this; Population will decrease through
natural disasters before the return of Christ. The book of Revelation
outlines these events. So, there is nothing to worry about concerning
overpopulation. We need to follow God’s plan to be fruitful and multiply until
Christ’s return. If we don’t, the economies of the world will suffer, as Japans
has been doing for more than ten years now. Japan has more old people
than young people, so their economy is upside down, as we say in the auto
sales business. They owe more than the government collects in taxes. The
USA will follow the same path if we are not careful. We are very close to it
right now. We probably have a few more years to correct the situation, after
that our economy will be in stagflation until the baby boomer generation
has died off.
Isaiah the prophet also predicted that population would decrease before the
return of Christ. He said mankind would be more scarce than pure gold.
Isa 13:11 I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will
put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the
Isa 13:12 I will make man scarcer than pure gold, more rare than the gold
of Ophir.
Isa 13:13 Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will
shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his
burning anger…
Revelation says that first ", then 1/3 and then 2/3 of the worlds population
will be destroyed when the end times plagues of the book of Revelation
strike the earth. Again, there is no need to worry about overpopulation.
There will probably be less than one billion people left alive on earth when
Christ returns. There may only be a few hundred thousand. Read
“Countdown to 6000” to get the details of every prophecy left to be fulfilled.
What about global warming and other “green” issues? God has provided
enough resources to sustain human life until Christ returns. At that time he
will renew the earth’s resources if necessary for the next 1000 years. After
that it won’t matter because eternity begins and we will not need to eat
unless we want to for pleasure. We will have angel type bodies.
What the “greens” and those concerned with environmental issues should
concentrate their efforts on is war. The military machines of the world are
the big polluters. Imagine if there were no warplanes, rockets and ground
vehicles in all the countries of the world. It’s a fact that the largest single
users of petroleum based fuels in the world are the militaries of the world.
Address that issue and you will make some progress with carbon based
Mat 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of
Not only that but you will be blessed by God for being a peacemaker. All
environmentally concerned people should concentrate on the old hippie
saying “Make Love not War.” Then they will be on the right track. We need
more people and fewer weapons to keep our old world going for as long as
we need it. It’s like keeping and old car running. We need to nurse it along
until we can get a new one.
The Answer to All of Our Problems - God's Blessing!
The answer to our problems is simply this, to follow God’s commands. If we
do we will be blessed again, if we don’t we will continue to be cursed.
Deut. 28:1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto
the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his
commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God
will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
Deut. 28:2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if
thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
Deut. 28:12 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven
to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of
thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not
Deut. 28:13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and
thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou
hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command
thee this day, to observe and to do them:
Deut. 28:14 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I
command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other
gods to serve them.
We, the United States, were formerly the head and not the tail. We lent to
many nations and did not have to borrow. Now without the help of the
Asians to lend us money our government would be broke in short order.
God’s word has been fulfilled in the history of our nation. He has proven
himself to be true to his word.
Deut. 28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice
of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his
statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come
upon thee, and overtake thee:
Deut. 28:16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the
Deut. 28:17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.
Deut. 28:18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land,
the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
Deut. 28:19 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt
thou be when thou goest out.
Deut. 28:20 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke,
in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed,
and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings,
whereby thou hast forsaken me.
Deut. 28:43 The alien who lives among you will rise above you higher and
higher, but you will sink lower and lower.
Deut. 28:44 He will lend to you, but you will not lend to him. He will be the
head, but you will be the tail.
Deut. 28:45 All these curses will come upon you. They will pursue you and
overtake you until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the LORD
your God and observe the commands and decrees he gave you.
We are now the tail of the dog. We are being wagged by our creditors. Not
long ago our government was considering a ban on some Chinese goods
that could contain poisonous lead. The Chinese government said that if we
banned their products they would quit lending us money and sell the dollar
based assets they hold. We backed down immediately. We are in such sad
shape in this nation that we have to allow our children to play with
dangerous toys in order to keep borrowing money from foreigners to allow
our government to continue to operate. We truly are now the tail and not
the head. God has brought us low because of our sins, but he can raise us
back up in short order, if we repent.
What Should We Do?
Now, as I write this, I’m about 999% sure we won’t do even one Item on
this small list. I almost decided to leave this section out and just say, We
Are Freaking Doomed! But, I write it, not expecting it to be done, but as a
witness against us. There is hope but we won’t accept it. There is a cure for
our disease, but we won’t take the medicine necessary to heal ourselves.
What is the cure? The cure is to do what we used to do, to do what we did
when we were blessed. The cure is to return to our old ways, to follow the
The Ten Commandments
There are hundreds of commandments and laws in the bible. But, here we
are only going to deal with the common ten. Some Christians may get their
hair standing on end here saying; whoa you are trying to put us under the
old testament law. Wait one second here before you get all fired up. Most
of the Ten Commandments are meant to be civil law. Do not kill, do not
steal, do not commit perjury etc. If we follow the ten we will have a decent
place to live, and God will bless us as he did in the past. Let’s go through
them and see how each one would help our nation become a better place
to live.
1. Deut. 5:7 “You shall have no other gods before me.
This is fairly simple, just like the answer Jesus gave to Satan. “You shall
worship the Lord your God and Him only shalt thou serve.” It’s not rocket
Jer. 10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen,
We are not to even learn about the ways of the heathen or their gods. It will
only serve to lead us astray. We should not even learn about Allah,
Buddha, the Hindu's or any other false religion. Foreigners visiting here
should of course have freedom to worship as they please, but our culture
and our holidays and our school calendars should not change to please
unbelievers in Yahweh, The God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob anf formerly the
USA when we were being blessed .
2. Deut. 5:8 & 9 “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of
anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them;
Going right along with the first commandment, almost as a continuation of
it, we are not to worship idols of gold, silver, wood stone or any other
material. This is simple; we are to worship only the invisible God, Yahweh.
3. Deut. 5:11 “You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for
the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
Another easy one. We are not to swear falsely using God’s name, (as in
court) or use his name loosely in casual talk. We are to reverence the
name of the Lord. Sometimes more is said about Jesus and God in the bar
than in the church.
4. Deut. 5:12-14 “Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy, as the
LORD your God has commanded you. Six days you shall labor and do all
your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it
you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your
manservant or maidservant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your
animals, nor the alien within your gates, so that your manservant and
maidservant may rest, as you do.
This was practiced to a large degree years ago, although everything was
shut down on Sunday instead of on the Sabbath. However, God still
blessed us, perhaps for at least trying, even if we weren’t doing it exactly
right. The Sabbath day is actually from sundown Friday to sundown
Saturday on Israeli time.
Businesses used to be closed on Sunday, giving everyone a day of rest.
Everyone had a mental health day. Families could get together and spend
quality time. Even the television was off of the air from Saturday at midnight
until Monday morning. Only the test pattern was on the screen. There was
no Sunday afternoon football or sports. Most people went to church on
Sunday; it was the only place open. People had fellowship with other
Christians on Sunday.
According to God’s law even the king’s servants were to have the day off to
rest and worship. The Sabbath day of rest was a blessing from God, not a
hardship. It is only greed that ended it. The desire for profit seven days a
week ended the “blue” laws. Now almost everything is open on Sundays.
How can people go to church when they are working? How can people get
away from stress when they work seven days a week? This is a part of
Satan’s plan, to make people so stressed out they go crazy and commit
horrible acts of violence, murdering their families, and by keeping them
away from church on Sunday they fail to learn the word of God.
Restoring one day when business is shut down, except for hospitals and
emergency services, (Jesus verified that was OK) would go a long way
toward making our country more God fearing and sane. Satan has us
running around chasing our tails seven days a week until we are driven
mad. It’s time to get back to doing things God’s way. It would save billions
in medical costs if people could just get some rest. And while we are doing
it we may as well do it right, shut it all down on the real Sabbath day, from
Friday evening to Saturday evening. Shut it all down. Rest. Go to Church.
Spend time with your family. Is that such a bad thing to do one day a
week? No football or NASCAR either, boo hoo.
5. Deut. 5:16 “Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God
has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with
you in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
God commands children to obey their parents, and promises a longer life
for doing so. Children learning to obey their parents might also cause them
to have more respect for their elders in general. What a blessing that would
be for teachers. Is that such a bad thing to do, to have well behaved
children? Satan would have us believe that you have to let children “do
their own thing” so as not to stifle their creativity. What it actually does is
causes them much harm later in life as they are unable to adapt to real life
conditions (such as the military) where they can’t always have their own
way. What a wonderful country it would be if this commandment was reimplemented.
Prov 13:24 He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is
careful to discipline him.
A normal child is capable of knowing right from wrong at 12 years of age. A
child is actually an inexperienced adult at that age. when Jesus was twelve
years old he went into the synagogue and began teaching the Rabbi's. He
was smart enough to do it at a younger age, but he didn't. He waited until
he was officially an adult. That is why bar and bat mitzvah's and
confirmation in the church take place at 12 years old.
Drug dealers know that "Juvee's" (juvenile offenders) get off easy for their
crimes so they recruit them to sell drugs. The first time juvenile offender
gets off with a slap on the wrist and the drug dealer recruits a new youth to
sell his wares. Now that the first one has been introduced to the easy
money of crime, they are on the road to becoming a life long criminal.
Eccl 8:11 Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed
speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do
This should not be. We are encouraging crime. Crime should be punished
quickly, no matter what the age of the offender. The ancient law was very
tough on juvenile crime. I'm not recommending a return to that but we can
see how serious God is about nipping juvenile crime in the bud in order to
have a decent society to live in.
(Deu 21:18 NKJV) "If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not
obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and who, when they
have chastened him, will not heed them,
(Deu 21:19 NKJV) "then his father and his mother shall take hold of him
and bring him out to the elders of his city, to the gate of his city.
(Deu 21:20 NKJV) "And they shall say to the elders of his city, 'This son of
ours is stubborn and rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton
and a drunkard.'
(Deu 21:21 NKJV) "Then all the men of his city shall stone him to death
with stones; so you shall put away the evil from among you, and all Israel
shall hear and fear.
There are more U.S. military suicides today than ever before in our history.
Why is this? Our young people cannot face reality or hardship. When they
get into the military or other tough real life situations they can't call for their
mother to come and cuss out the principal and the teacher, like they have
done all of their lives. If there is ever another war fought on our own soil the
over 50 people will have to fight it. Our little sissies are neither willing nor
able to do so. If they can't start the game over when they lose, like a
computer game, they refuse to play. They would rather eat their gun than
defend our nation or suffer any hardship. It is not all their fault. The school
system has taught them that no one should ever bully them, and if anyone
ever does, tell your mother, the teacher, the principal and the guidance
counselor. They will fix it for you and make it all better, for the rest of your
life. That is a lie from hell. Life is just not that easy, for anyone.
Even the most God fearing people in the bible had their fair share of
problems in life. Adam, Job, Abraham, Jacob, David and all the rest had
problems. Why should today’s generation be exempt and just have a soft
cushy little life? They don't have that, but they believe that they should and
when it doesn't come to pass as they have been taught it should they go
into mental breakdown. Dr. Spock (not Mr. Spock) was wrong, and even he
admitted it near the end of his life.
Jer 16:19 ... "Surely our fathers have inherited lies, Worthlessness and
unprofitable things."
When today’s children find out that they have been lied to, they can't
handle it. It is like finding out at 21 years old that there is no Santa Claus.
They get so depressed they would rather be dead than alive. Thats what
Satan wants. Depressed people who live useless lives and die young. He
(Satan) has our youth in his clutches.
6. Deut. 5:17 “You shall not murder.
Simple civil law here. It is not taught though now, that there is a judgment
coming for murderers. That is why it is becoming more and more prevalent
in the end times. If you can murder someone and improve your life by doing
so, go ahead, as long as you can get away with it. That is what our society
now teaches. Maybe they don’t come right out and say it that way, but our
court system sets that for an example. Find a technicality, beat the system.
Yes, beat the system. Murder someone and get rich, or die tryin, as the
song says. This includes abortion and infanticide. Capital punishment is not
murder. The government has the authority to execute criminals, but private
citizens do not. A private citizen, without the consent of the law (as in an
execution for a crime) can only take a life in self defense, according to the
bible. Note: The kinfolk of a murder victim were the ones who stoned the
murderer. They did not have a hooded man inject a lethal drug into the
criminal. This gave the family a part in the punishment for the crime.
7. Deut. 5:18 “You shall not commit adultery.
This command covers all immorality, not just adultery. We shouldn’t even
allow shows on TV that feature any type of immorality. It just tempts people
to try it for themselves; it looks like so much fun on daytime soap operas.
WoW! What would be on TV if there wasn’t any illicit sex? Leave it to
Beaver? Father Knows Best? Andy of Mayberry? Clean wholesome
shows? What a change that would be. Good Lord! Could we stand it?
Would we have to bail out the porn industry?
8. Deut. 5:19 “You shall not steal.
Just more sensible civil law. I remember the days when you didn’t have to
lock the doors to your house or your car. No one would steal your stuff. Try
that now. How nice it would be if people were honest. That’s how God
intended it to be.
9. Deut. 5:20 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
This concerns perjury. God had a sure fire plan for dealing with perjurers,
people who were falsely accusing someone else of a crime. The perjurer
would receive the punishment that they were trying to inflict on an innocent
person, even up to the death penalty. Whatever they were lying about in
court, they would get the penalty for. We should be following this and clean
up our courts and legal system.
Deut. 19:16-17 If a malicious witness takes the stand to accuse a man of a
crime, the two men involved in the dispute must stand in the presence of
the LORD before the priests and the judges who are in office at the time.
Deut. 19:18-19 The judges must make a thorough investigation, and if the
witness proves to be a liar, giving false testimony against his brother, then
do to him as he intended to do to his brother. You must purge the evil from
among you.
The lawyers behind a perjurer, who cook up the phony stories should also
receive the same punishment. Many lawyers intentionally and knowingly
have their clients lie on the stand and blame someone else for crimes they
committed. This would end a lot of perjury and save our legal system a lot
of costs. There would also be a lot of dead lawyers. Good business for the
10. Deut. 5:21 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife. You shall not set
your desire on your neighbor’s house or land, his manservant or
maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
This is for our thoughts. We should not even desire to steal or somehow
cheat our neighbor out of any of his goods that God has blessed him with.
Now if our neighbor has a beautiful new car, there is nothing wrong with
going out and buying a similar car, if we can afford it. We just can’t steal
his. This commandment should encourage us to work, not steal. Get a 2nd
job if you want more stuff. Go ahead, be the consumer! Just don’t steal
your neighbors goods or work on the Sabbath.
Mat 5:27 "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not
commit adultery.'
Mat 5:28 "But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her
has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
Mat 5:29 "If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from
you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than
for your whole body to be cast into hell.
Coveting is more than that. Coveting is also figuring out how to defraud old
people (or anyone) out of their retirement savings or goods, and stealing
the homes and inheritance of widows and orphans. I live in Florida. It is
standard procedure to cheat everyone out of everything you can. It is
almost the law that you have to do it. We live in a twisted and evil society.
Now, are all of these laws really necessary some Christians may ask? Well,
Jesus in a sense said no, these are not necessary if you follow the two.
Matt. 22:36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Matt. 22:37 Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and
with all your soul and with all your mind.’
Matt. 22:38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
Matt. 22:39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
Matt. 22:40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two
If we could follow the two commandments, we would automatically be
following the ten. We would follow the first four commandments because
we loved the Lord with all of our hearts and would do what he says, and we
would follow the rest because of our love for our fellow man. That is not just
a New Testament command by the way.
Deu 6:5 "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all
your soul, and with all your strength.
Lev 19:18 ... but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.
Think about it. If we loved our neighbor as our self, we would not kill him,
rob him, steal from him, lie about him, commit adultery with his wife, or
figure out a way to get his goods. If you can follow the two commandments,
you don’t need the ten. But, our society needs the ten because we have
never reached the point of spiritual maturity where we can follow God’s law
in our hearts and minds without specific written instructions.
Deut. 5:22 These are the commandments the LORD proclaimed in a loud
voice to your whole assembly there on the mountain from out of the fire, the
cloud and the deep darkness; and he added nothing more. Then he wrote
them on two stone tablets and gave them to me.
If we want our nation healed and healthy in every way all we have to do is
to once again begin to obey God’s laws. He is merciful and will forgive us
and restore us as the head and not the tail. He can do it fast. Faster than
things came apart they can go back together. Do you think they will? Do
you think we will begin obeying God again? I sincerely doubt it, so it looks
like we are headed for hell in a hand basket, but I hope that I am wrong and
we repent as a nation. Even if 10% would repent God would probably bless
us greatly. He would have spared Sodom and Gomorrah if only ten
righteous people could have been found between the two cities. He would
spare us too, but we must repent and begin to follow his laws.
Prov 6:16 These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an
abomination to Him:
Prov 6:17 A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood,
Prov 6:18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running
to evil,
Prov 6:19 A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord
among brethren.
The things above are exactly the things we are doing today in the United
States. When we do these things we bring down God's judgment upon
ourselves. It’s no coincidence that everything evil seems to use the word
“PRIDE” in it’s promotions. Pride is why Satan fell and it is the evil desire
that he also plants in mens hearts.
Psa. 10:4 In his pride the wicked does not seek him; in all his thoughts
there is no room for God.
Psa. 73:6 Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with
Prov. 8:13 To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil
behavior and perverse speech.
Prov. 11:2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility
comes wisdom.
Prov. 13:10 Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who
take advice.
Prov. 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
Is. 2:11 The eyes of the arrogant man will be humbled and the pride of men
brought low; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.
Is. 2:17 The arrogance of man will be brought low and the pride of men
humbled; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day,
Is. 23:9 The LORD Almighty planned it, to bring low the pride of all glory
and to humble all who are renowned on the earth.
Perilous Times Are Coming
2Tim. 3:1-5 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural
affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of
those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more
than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power
thereof: from such turn away.
We are going to undergo some very bad times in this nation and in this
world, but all hope is not lost. The devil will ultimately lose, Jesus will win,
and those who believe in him will spend eternity in Heaven. Those who
don’t will be cast into the lake of Fire. It’s that simple. Choose today whom
you will serve. God or Satan. Heaven or Hell. The choice is yours.
Rev. 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that
wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had
received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These
both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Rev. 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire
and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be
tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Rev. 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the
second death.
Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was
cast into the lake of fire.
This book would not be complete without a simple explanation of Salvation.
If you would like to help turn this nation around then DO what is written
James 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving
your own selves.
Very briefly, everyone who ever has or will ever make it into God’s
Kingdom will have been saved by faith in the Messiah, Jesus Christ. Many
before his first coming never knew is name as Jesus Christ. They only
knew and believed by faith that God Would someday send a Redeemer, a
Messiah, a Christ, to save them from both spiritual and physical problems.
They had Faith in an unknown un-named Jesus Christ. The promise of a
Saviour began in Genesis right after mans fall into sin and salvation by faith
in this promise has been available from the time of Adam and Eve onward
up until This promised Messiah, Saviour and Redeemer was revealed as
Jesus Christ about 2000 years ago.
We no longer have the option of just believing in some un-named coming
redeemer for salvation. This option vanishes for every person the moment
they hear, read or have the Gospel presented to them in some manner.
From that point on they must make a choice. This is so because Jesus
(John 10:24-29 NCV) The Jews gathered around him and said, "How long
will you make us wonder about you? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly."
Jesus answered, "I told you already, but you did not believe. The miracles I
do in my Father's name show who I am. But you don't believe, because you
are not my sheep. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they
follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never die, and no one can
steal them out of my hand. My Father gave my sheep to me. He is greater
than all, and no person can steal my sheep out of my Father's hand.
Since Jesus returned to Heaven whenever anyone hears the Gospel the
Holy Spirit is there to open the minds and hearts of those who are hearing it
to the fact that it is the truth. Anyone who rejects the Gospel upon having it
presented to it simply show that they are not willing to accept the truth and
be saved.
You can be saved right now, in the next few moments by simply praying
sincerely to God the Father and to Jesus Christ the simple prayer below.
Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus Christ; I know I am a sinner. Please come into
my life and save me and forgive me all of my sins and make me into the
kind of person you want me to be. I’m trusting only in Jesus Christ for my
salvation and I ask this prayer in his name. Thank You Lord for Saving me,
That's all there is to it. Now tell someone about it. Read your Bible. Get
Baptized. Discover your Spiritual Gifts and Talents. Find a good church and
volunteer to serve in some manner according to your gifts and talents.
You may ask, How do I find a good church. That's easy. Find one where
people are being saved or at least an invitation is given for salvation
through Jesus Christ in every service and you will be in a good church.
(John 7:14-17 NCV) When the feast was about half over, Jesus went to
the Temple and began to teach. The Jews were amazed and said, "This
man has never studied in school. How did he learn so much?" Jesus
answered, "The things I teach are not my own, but they come from him
who sent me. If people choose to do what God wants, they will know that
my teaching comes from God and not from me.
If you begin to serve the Lord and do his will you will understand more and
more with certainty the truth of teaching and doctrines of Jesus Christ. If
you ever doubt your salvation, refer to the verse below, and remember,
God cannot lie, it is true, and will always be true if you meet the
qualifications in the verse below.
(Rom 10:9 NKJV) that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and
believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be
(Titus 1:2 NKJV) in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie,
promised before time began,
